There are many dangerous contact-poisonous plants throughout the world,
especially in Belize. These plants can cause severe pain, rashes,
blisters or leave scars. Some trees are reported to be so powerful that
even raindrops falling from them can irritate the skin. Other plant
species can cause blindness through the smoke of burning wood or from
rubbing the eyes after touching the leaves.
